    BlogDay 2008Its Blog Day 2008. It’s just a single day each year when we are encouraged to share 5 blogs that you might not yet be reading. Its really just a way to try to extend that the type of blogs that you might want to have a look at.

    As a result, I have chosen a varied set of blogs covering a variety of different writers and types – I hope that at least a couple will prove of interest to you.

    Happy Blog Day 2008!

    1. Bird Droppings: the self styled ‘ramblings of a deranged mind’ which just happens to belong to Drayton Bird, considered one of the most successful direct marketers at work today. Not for the faint hearted, but certainly entertaining and most certainly to the point!

    2. Biz Growth News: if you’re looking for personal branding and social media information sandwiched between a generous slice of practical advice and common sense, then this is the place to be heading to see what Krishna De has to say. Not to mention her Biz Growth Live podcast series which features some of the experts that you’ll really not want to miss.

    3. How to Look Good: by Caryn Franklin, of The Clothes Show fame, it’s the easy style of writing that I particularly like which really gets her message across. One of those blogs where you can hear her voice speaking the words as you read them.

    4. Innocent Drinks: the only pseudo corporate blog in my list, but one that I have found which has stuck to its guns and keeps doing things their way. It’s marketing without the marketing and PR without the PR - but it’s certainly branding through and through. Oh and it works …!

    5. Chris Brogan: current darling of the social media marketing crowd and with good reason. Well worth the time to look through what he has to say and just let the idea of social media sink in – you’ll soon find that you start to realise all the options you have and, of course, the central roles that a blog and your RSS feed can play in your marketing.

    Spotlight on UK Blogs - all postsEach week, I will be highlighting some of the Business Blogs which exist in the UK. The aim is to show a cross section of what people and businesses are writing about and how they are approaching the task of using blogs in their business activities. As a result, you’ll find that these posts will contain a mix of Blogs displaying a range of topics and styles.

    In addition to this weekly selection, I am working with others to build a comprehensive list of Business Blogs in the UK. So if there are UK blogs which you have visited and would recommend (including your own!), then please let me know by leaving a comment or sending me a message. Thanks!

    Innocent Drinks
    Nicely integrated into their site and certainly managing so far to keep up the smooothie and fun image they cultivate … along with the fruit, of course.

    Medical Dental Financial Services
    Dentists and Financial Advisors together! I should hate it … but I don’t! Nicely focused blog in start-up phase by Ray Prince and Graeme Urwin. Now, open wide, this won’t hurt …!

    Charkin Blog
    Richard Charkin from Macmillan does his own bit of personal publishing – a true Busman’s Holiday some might say!

    Tom Watson, MP
    Well, in a week where everyone seemingly wanted to get out of the government, I had to resign myself to including a first political blog – no doubt the first of many.
